Livermorium: Livermorium is an element created by combining calcium and curium. Even though it was “discovered” in Russia, it was named after the US Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory because over the years scientists at Livermore have been involved in many areas of nuclear science. This is a prime example of great synthesizing among nations. I chose to use a silver arrow pointing at light to represent where we are headed, to a better understanding and clarity of our world. The colourful ribbons symbolize the nations and how we are able to now work together to further our knowledge in science as a world and community.
